Can Nutrition Counseling Help with Type 2 Diabetes?

The American Diabetes Association recommends nutrition counseling for all people with type 2 diabetes as part of their treatment plan. Nutrition counseling is defined as working with a registered dietitian in a one-on-one setting to help a person reach their nutrition and health goals through evidence-based nutrition and lifestyle interventions. 

There is strong evidence that nutrition counseling is an effective treatment tool for type 2 diabetes in combination with medical care. The goal of nutrition therapy is to support healthy eating habits that minimize the complications of diabetes. This is achieved by targeting individual blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol goals through personalized nutrition interventions. 

Some factors increase the effectiveness of nutrition counseling in type 2 diabetes, such as: 

  • At least three visits within the first six months of establishing care with a dietitian.
  • Routine follow-up visits throughout the rest of the first year, followed by at least one annual follow-up. 
  • Evidence-based nutrition interventions. 
  • Goals are tailored to the individual’s preferences and medical history.

Benefits of Nutrition Counseling for Type 2 Diabetes

Research shows that people with type 2 diabetes who participated in nutrition therapy with a registered dietitian experienced up to a two percent decrease in A1c levels after three months. Hemoglobin A1c is a three-month average of blood sugar levels. Though A1c goals may vary from person to person, the standard goal is under seven percent.

Working with a dietitian has been shown to result in lower dosages needed for oral glucose-lowering medications, like metformin. Some people are able to discontinue one or more medications altogether. Nutrition therapy can also help prevent weight gain in people starting insulin therapy.

Individuals who undergo nutrition therapy after being newly diagnosed with type 2 diabetes have the greatest improvement in A1c and medication needs. However, there is strong evidence that nutrition counseling is beneficial at any stage of type 2 diabetes. 

Studies show that people who participated in nutrition counseling for type 2 diabetes reported increased motivation, knowledge, and quality of life. They also had lower stress levels and felt healthier. 

People with type 2 diabetes have a greater risk of cardiovascular disease. There is evidence that individualized nutrition therapy can improve risk factors like high blood pressure and certain cholesterol markers in people with type 2 diabetes.

What to Expect

If you’ve never participated in nutrition counseling before, you may be unsure how to get started and what to expect at your first appointment. 

Choosing a Provider

When establishing care with a nutrition professional, it’s important to check the credentials of the provider you select. The research on the benefits of nutrition counseling in type 2 diabetes is based on working with a registered dietitian (also known as a registered dietitian nutritionist). 

Dietitians are trained in medical nutrition therapy (MNT), a type of nutrition counseling targeted at improving medical conditions like diabetes through evidence-based nutrition interventions. 

Some dietitians have an additional certification called a CDCES (Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist). This credential means they have spent extra hours studying diabetes and working with patients who have diabetes, along with passing an exam and maintaining continuing education on the subject. 

There are many different nutrition strategies for type 2 diabetes available online, but many of these are not evidence-based. When working with a registered dietitian, you’ll receive evidence-based recommendations from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the American Diabetes Association guidelines. 

Your First Appointment

There are usually three parts to a nutrition therapy consultation: history, education, and goal setting. The dietitian will review your medical history and ask about your current dietary habits and concerns.

During the education portion of the appointment, the dietitian will talk to you about your understanding of diabetes and the recommended dietary and lifestyle changes. There are many topics your visits may cover, including: 

  • Macronutrient ratios (carbs, fat, and protein) and calorie intake.
  • Dietary strategies for optimizing blood sugar levels (such as carb counting or the plate method).
  • Insulin to carb ratios.
  • Fiber and whole grains.
  • Added sugars.
  • Alcohol intake. 
  • Physical activity.
  • Heart-healthy dietary and lifestyle habits.

Lastly, your dietitian will work with you to develop a personalized plan that feels both realistic and sustainable in the long term. The dietary guidelines for type 2 diabetes are to eat a moderate carbohydrate diet rich in whole grains, lean proteins, legumes, fruits, and vegetables with a limited saturated fat intake.

One tool that can help you incorporate these recommendations into your meal plan is the diabetes plate method, which involves dividing your plate into three sections– with one quarter of your plate including high fiber, whole grain carbohydrates, one quarter being lean proteins, and the remaining half consisting of nonstarchy vegetables. 

If you have other health concerns, like kidney disease or high blood pressure, your dietitian will consider these conditions while creating your plan. The nutrition recommendations will also be individualized to your: 

  • Food preferences.
  • Lifestyle.
  • Culture/religion.
  • Economic status.
  • Medical history.

We’ve got answers.

Still deciding if we’re right for you? These frequently asked questions may help.

Why does Nourish ask for patient medical records?

Medical records provide our dietitians with helpful information about the patient’s medical history. They also help ensure that we can get the claims covered by insurance!

Does Nourish offer in-person appointments?

Nourish is primarily a telehealth nutrition care organization and we do not typically offer in-person appointments. However, should you need to discuss this further, you are welcome to reach out to us at

What is telehealth?

Telehealth allows a healthcare provider to provide care to you without an in-person office visit. Telehealth is done primarily online with internet access on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. In the case of Nourish, we use Zoom as our primary means of holding any given appointment with your dietitian. You do not need a Zoom account to log into your Nourish appointment.

Can I meet with my dietitian while I’m driving?

Unfortunately we cannot conduct Nourish telehealth appointments with patients who are driving during their appointment, for both safety and compliance purposes.

How do I meet my dietitian?

All Nourish appointments are done via video call over Zoom. We recommend using a desktop computer or tablet connected to the internet to ensure there aren’t any connection issues at the time of the appointment. You can access your appointments through your reminder texts/emails, or by signing in to the Nourish portal at You do not need a Zoom account to log into your Nourish appointment.

How do I know which dietitian is right for me?

If you are looking for a dietitian who has expertise dealing with individuals diagnosed with a specific illness or have a more specific goal outside of general health, you can check out which dietitian would best fit your needs here by using the drop down selections.

I’m interested in a partnership with Nourish, who do I get in touch with?

We love teaming up! If you’re interested in any kind of partnership or collaboration, please feel free to reach out to us at and we would be happy to get you linked up with our partnerships team.

I am a registered dietitian and I was interested in getting involved in Nourish, how should I proceed?

We are always on the lookout for new amazing dietitians to join our team so please apply using this link and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

What is your fax number?

Nourish's fax number is (512) 399-9039.

How do I get in touch with Nourish’s support team?

You can reach out to us via email at and we will be back in touch with you within 24 hours but likely much sooner.

Does your support team offer phone support?

While we will, in most cases, be able to address and answer any questions much faster via email at, we understand that sometimes a phone call is needed. If email isn’t an option for you, you can reach out to us over the phone via text messaging or a phone call at (512) 693-7045.

What is your cancellation and rescheduling policy?

We offer free cancellation and rescheduling for all appointments made with any of our dietitians. The only instance where you would be charged for cancelling or rescheduling an appointment is if the appointment change is made within 24 hours of your appointment, in which case you will be charged a $145 late appointment change fee.

I’m interested in seeing a specific dietitian but after I entered my state, they are no longer able to be booked.

Unfortunately, there are some states that have laws in place that prevent you from seeing a dietitian from outside of your state. Likely, the dietitian is not based in your state and, at this time, does not have licensing for your specific states. Please reach out to if you have questions!

I found a dietitian that fits my needs but they’re fully booked, what do I do?

We have an amazing team of dietitians here at Nourish and sometimes they are fully booked up weeks in advance. Check out one of our other dietitians if you see that your initial choice is booked up. However, we are more than happy to put you on a waitlist for the dietitian should that be preferred.

Simply reach out to us via email at with your name, phone number and the dietitian you are interested in being put on the waitlist for and we will will take care of the rest!

I forgot when my appointment is, where do I check this?

You can check all of your upcoming appointments through our patient portal by signing in here and going to the "Appointments" tab.

I would like my chart notes from my previous appointments, where would I find these?

If you need any information or notes from your previous appointments, please reach out to us at and we’d be happy to provide these documents to you.

I was referred to Nourish by my doctor, what are the next steps?

If you had not yet received an email/SMS message prompting you to sign up with Nourish, please reach out to our support team at and we would be happy to get you set up as soon as possible.

I would like to have a call with the dietitian I am interested in before signing up, is this a possibility?

The initial appointment will act as your opportunity to go over what you’re looking for and your overall goals with your dietitian. We typically are unable to offer additional calls with the dietitian prior to the intake appointment, but in select cases, we may be able to set up a 15-minute introductory call with the dietitian you are considering prior to the first appointment. Please reach out to support@usenourish if you are interested in pursuing this.

How long do I have to complete the paperwork in my patient portal?

Please complete all paperwork found in your patient portal 48 hours before your initial appointment, as this helps your dietitian prepare for your appointment, and helps Nourish get your services covered by insurance.

I need to reschedule or cancel my appointment

You can cancel or reschedule your appointment in our patient portal by signing in here and going to the "Appointments" tab. It is important to keep in mind that any changes to your appointment must be done more than 24 hours out from your appointment to avoid any late appointment change fees.

How will I know if my Nourish appointments are covered by insurance?

We will send you an email notification when your first appointment is confirmed to be fully covered by insurance! If your appointment has any patient responsibility or is denied, we will reach out to coordinate your care options.

When will I be charged for my copay?

Any owed copay is determined after we receive the claim back from your given insurance company. This process usually takes between 2-3 weeks but may take longer depending on how long it takes for the insurance company to respond to a given claim.

What if my claims go to deductible?

We offer patients 2 options:

  1. Pay deductible amount for previous visits and continue to bill insurance for future sessions
  2. Cancel all claims from past sessions (so you owe $0 total for any sessions that have occurred), and either a) cancel future appointments or b) continue doing sessions without billing insurance ($145 per session)

What happens if my claims have a copay or coinsurance?

The vast majority of our patients don’t pay anything for Nourish’s services! If your claim does have a copay or coinsurance:

For your first appointment: You will receive an invoice within 24 hours of the claim being adjudicated by insurance; you will be auto-charged 5 days later if you do not reach out with any concerns after receiving the invoice.

For follow-up appointments: You will be auto-charged when each claim is returned from insurance.

What happens if my claims are denied by insurance?

You will not be charged for any visits that have already occurred:

We then offer you 2 options:

  1. Continue doing sessions and pay out of pocket
  2. Cancel future sessions
My insurance rejected the claims for my appointments, will I be responsible for these costs?

No need to worry; if your insurance denies payment or your claim goes to a deductible that you don’t wish to contribute to, we will not charge you for any sessions that have already occurred. We will reach out to you personally to determine payment options for future sessions if you wish to continue working with your dietitian.

Do you plan on accepting more insurances going forward?

We are always working to expand the list of insurances we accept at Nourish. Unfortunately, this process can take quite some time, but please keep an eye out on our accepted insurances page here as we grow for more updates on this.

I need help picking a dietitian that best fits my needs

Not a problem! If you are unable to find a dietitian through our Find a Provider page, please reach out to our support team at and we would be happy to assist you in identifying the ideal dietitian for your specific needs.

Why do you require a credit card to sign up?

We require a credit card to be kept on file for all clients primarily to enforce our no-show fee, which is billed at the same rate as a cash pay session ($145). You will only be responsible for a no-show fee if you fail to show up to your appointment or cancel it within 24 hours of the appointment start time.

If we are in-network with your insurance provider, we will work hard to ensure coverage for your services. A small percentage of our clients incur some out-of-pocket costs from their insurance, such as copayments or deductibles. In those instances, you will be responsible for those fees. However, we will not charge you without advanced notice, and will work with you and the insurance provider to minimize costs when possible.

Please feel free to reach out with any additional questions.

What if my insurance changes?

Nourish patients can update their insurance in the Nourish patient portal by visiting and adding a new insurance policy in the “Insurance” tab.

Can I use my HSA/FSA to pay for services?

Yes! You are welcome to pay using HSA or FSA funds.

Are there any other fees to use Nourish?

No! 94% of our patients have sessions fully covered by insurance, at $0 out of pocket cost to them. There are no other hidden or surprise fees with Nourish. That said, you will be responsible for any copay or co-insurance payments determined by your insurance policy agreement.

Do you accept Medicare?

Yes! We accept Medicare. However, Medicare will only cover nutrition therapy if you have a diagnosis of diabetes or chronic kidney disease. Unfortunately, any other conditions (including pre-diabetes) are not covered by Medicare.

Which states can you see patients in?

Nourish is available in all 50 states!

Do you speak Spanish?

Yes, we have several team members who speak Spanish! They can help you make your appointment. Please let us know that you would like a Spanish-speaking dietitian when you set up your first appointment by calling 512-693-7045. Sí, tenemos un dietista en nuestro personal que habla español. Por favor, indique a la recepcionista que le gustaría hablar con una dietista que habla español cuando haga su primera cita.

Do providers at Nourish work with children?

Yes, at Nourish we have many dietitians who specialize in working with children. We have experience in dealing with nutrition issues related to children, including overweight/underweight, diabetes, hypercholesterolemia, food allergies, and eating disorders.

How many appointments will I need?

We have a very individualized approach depending upon your current diet, your goals and the number and severity of the health issues you face. Ideally, we like to work with you weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly, depending upon your needs. This approach provides an opportunity to work with you during various eating situations throughout all the seasons of the year (holidays, vacations, barbecues, etc.). Some clients need more intensive follow-up than others — it varies from client to client, but we will always work with you for to achieve your best outcome.

Will my insurance cover my sessions? How much does an appointment cost?

Nourish is currently in-network with 5 major insurance companies: Blue Cross Blue Shield/Anthem, United Healthcare, Aetna, Cigna, and Medicare. For in-network patients, we work with your insurance company to ensure coverage.

94% of in-network patients pay $0 out of pocket. Use our insurance coverage calculator to verify your coverage and learn more about how we work with your insurance company.

In rare cases, there are costs associated with using insurance such as a small co-pay. In these cases, you will be responsible for those fees.

It is risk-free to try Nourish: if your insurance denies payment or your claim goes to a deductible that you don’t wish to contribute to, we will not charge you for any sessions that have already occurred. We will reach out to you personally to determine payment options for future sessions if you wish to continue working with your dietitian.‍

We also offer private pay services if your insurance does not cover sessions for $145 per session. Contact us today at if you have any other questions.

Which insurance companies does Nourish work with?

We currently work with Medicare, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, United Healthcare, and Aetna. We do not accept Medicaid at this time. Please reach out if you'd like us to add coverage for another network!

Are dietitians the same thing as nutritionists?

No, they are not the same. The title "nutritionist" is not a protected title, which means that anyone, including yourself, can call themselves a nutritionist. At Nourish, all our providers are Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDN) which is a legally protected title. Registered Dietitian Nutritionists must complete a Bachelor or Master's degree in Nutrition, pass a national exam, and complete a number of ongoing continuing education credits annually.
